All Messier

from Dan Rosen at NHL.com,

Mark Messier is sitting on the sidelines these days, enjoying the early stages of his new life as a retired NHL legend. Even still, few of the game’s legends are as tuned in to today’s NHL as Messier.

He’s opinionated. He’s eloquent. He’s passionate.

NHL.com was lucky enough to hear Messier be all those things and more in an exclusive phone interview Monday morning. We asked him about free agency, the Detroit Red Wings, the Hockey Hall of Fame, the Winter Classic and a whole lot more….

NHL.com: Does four Cups in 11 years and having a core group of players — Nicklas Lidstrom, Kris Draper, Kirk Maltby, Darren McCarty and Tomas Holmstrom —  playing on all four championship teams make the Detroit Red Wings a dynasty?

MM: You have to really respect what they have been able to do for a long period of time, without having great draft picks. To call it a dynasty — I don’t know.

much more...
